N: Sweet with maple syrup, but with a slightly atringent, woody kind of balance to it. Slight apple cider note. Lightly hit with a dash of black pepper. Evolves to be more creamy with a vanilla note. Gentle cherry.
P: Slightly thin initially; becomes creamier with a bit of time in the glass. Light cinnamon, some caramel and toffee. Maple syrup, a touch of powdered sugar, and slight breadiness.
F: Cinnamon, slightly drying wood; a dusty tone to it. Some light red wine, a touch of dark chocolate.
This benefits from a bit of time in the glass to develop the nose (and the finish seems to be aided by it too). A little more interesting with the sweet nose and slightly tannic finish.
The nose is has some wet cardboard, maybe a touch of mildew (not in a bad way) and a bit of butterscotch hard candy. The palate has some vanilla extract and wood with a dry mouthfeel. The finish is dry and slightly acidic.
